Jea, if I remember right, it seems to me that the tomatoes where Whole that size of can, but I did chop them up some. (since I made this recipe last year, I just couldn't remember where I had left off in Posting any new recipes that I've tried, but since the Holiday was close and it sounded so good to me again and we would like to make this again sometime, I chose to post that one since I did not see it in the KRT Archives)
I have 2 Rival Crockpots, but the one I used for this recipe is the 6 Quart.
Not sure about Gluten Free, the recipe doesn't say.
Sorry, I forgot to post how many people this recipe serves, it says 6 - 8.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did if you try it.
I need to check our Pantry too, as the Mail Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is coming up soon, Saturday, May 11th.
